Most Businesses do Have Some Form of Website
Businesses today know that they should have a website and the truth is most businesses do have some form of a website. Even very small businesses have managed to get a site on the Internet even if it is a template site through a service.
This is a great first step because it does allow people who are looking specifically for your site and who know your URL do find it and that lends some legitimacy to your business. Not having a site at all does leave many people with the idea that your business is very small or not up to date. This type of site does allow people to gain information they need including your phone number or location. In a better economy and before the explosion of the Internet this was enough to bring clients and customers to your business but today your business needs much more!
It is All in the List
Collecting the names and email addresses of potential customers is one goal of a marketing website. Making appointments, selling products, and promoting related products or services through your website can bring in additional revenue that can mean the difference between a successful business and one that is dying or barely staying alive in this highly and quickly changing market.
How many new clients or sales has your current website created over the last three months? If your answer is few or none then you need a marketing and sales website fast!
Gathering potential client names and emails then giving them information they want and desire is the way to position you as the expert, have the image that your company is an industry leader and gather a great group of potential customers to market to over the buying cycle.
Your marketing team can stay in contact with potential clients until they are ready to make the decision to buy. This is particularly important for products that have a longer buying cycle and higher price.
